Including the 49ers' 55-10 victory over the Broncos in Super Bowl XXIV, these teams have a 7-7 all-time record against each other. The Broncos took the last meeting, 42-17 at home in 2014, but have dropped three of their last four visits to San Francisco.

Denver posted its third consecutive win with a 24-10 victory in Cincinnati last week. This is the Broncos' longest winning streak in a single season since winning four in a row to open the 2016 season after winning each of their final five (including the playoffs) in 2015.

The 49ers were eliminated from playoff contention with a 43-16 loss in Seattle last week, the most points they have allowed since Week 6, 2016 (45 at Buffalo). San Francisco has now lost double-digit games in four consecutive seasons, the longest such streak in franchise history.

San Francisco has five takeaways this year, the fewest by any team through 12 games of a season since 1950, and has an NFL-worst -20 turnover margin. Denver has nine takeaways and one giveaway during its three-game win streak, and its +8 turnover margin since Week 11 leads the NFL.

Phillip Lindsay rushed for a career-high 157 yards and two touchdowns last week, joining Mike Anderson and Clinton Portis as the only Bronco rookies with 150+ rushing yards and 2+ rushing TD in a game. He is the third rookie to have such a game since 2015, along with Leonard Fournette and David Johnson.

Nick Mullens passed for a career-high 414 yards and two touchdowns last week, with both scores and 129 of the yards going to Dante Pettis. It is the most single-game receiving yards by a 49er rookie since Jerry Rice had 241 on December 9, 1985.
